I had these skinny carrot muffins every single day for 3 weeks. If not for breakfast then certainly for a snack. And a few times for an after supper treat.
But this story started a while back when the farm shop had huge special offer on carrots. Plus I was rather hungry so I somehow found myself with five kilos of carrots. Yeap. OH’s eyes almost popped out when I got home because 5 kilos is excessive even for me. But then I listed all the things I would make including sweet potato and carrot soup and Instant Pot Chicken Noodle Soup. Well let’s just say we have been a rather carrot centric household these past few weeks.
These carrot muffins are very easy to make. You don’t need to peel the carrots and everything gets done in the food processor in less than 10 mins whilst mini chefs get to do the important task of switching it on and off.

You guys!!!! These are AMAZING!! I made these originally for my son to try and sneak in some extra veggies. I also had a ton of carrots in my fridge that needed to used. This recipe is SO EASY. You throw in everything into a food processor (no need to even peel the carrots!) and pour right into the muffin tins. As a mom with a young child, fast & easy is KEY. Anyway – I didn’t even let these cool before tasting them and – WOW – I may need to hide these for myself!! A+++
These carrot muffins look delicious for breakfast or tea time and I can easily integrate them into my current diet program !
Oh I love carrot recipes, especially when it’s cakes and muffins! These look absolutely delicious!
